The Lindenhof

Carsten: “The Lindenhof ** in Giethoorn by chef Martin Kruithof (“the sailing chef”). This top chef has been residing with his wife Marjan in their beautiful restaurant farm with a large and beautiful garden for 27 years. It's something to be jealous of. Two years after opening, it received its first Michelin star, followed very rightly by the second star in 2005. Martin also cooks every edition of the pop-up restaurant M during the Masters of LXRY. Accommodating a maximum of 30 guests and maintaining a distance of 1,5 meters are no problem at all in his business. He has started cautiously again since mid-April. They also have a total of 13 beautiful suites. When you make a reservation, make sure you book sailing with Martin. He sails with you on the waters around Giethoorn, with delicious dishes and wines. He also lets you taste various herbs and edible plants that he uses in his kitchen. You can't get any closer to nature. You can even land there with the helicopter!”

The Bokkedoorns

Carsten: “De Bokkedoorns ** in Overveen by Pascal Beeren is an evergreen in the Michelin star landscape, with a super terrace in the dunes and a recently completely new design. The banks were not lining up for that and as creative as this young entrepreneur is, he achieved it through crowdfunding: Six months ago he managed to convince 60 regular guests to transfer 5.000 euros each. In this way, Pascal was able to finance the renovation and his guests will get their 'investment' back in food and drinks in three years. Smart entrepreneur”. De Bokkedoorns is also a participant in every edition of the annual pop-up restaurant M during the Masters of LXRY. Chef Roy Eijkelkamp did not hesitate to serve a perfectly roasted hare loin for 140 guests during the last edition. Host Peter Bruins, who has been working at De Bokkedoorns for 40 (!) years, really provides the warm blanket of hospitality. It is therefore not without reason that he has been presented with an award by Michelin this year for his excellent work.”

The Treeswijkhoeve

Carsten; “Dick and Anne Laura Middelweerd's Treeswijkhoeve ** has been located in Waalre near Eindhoven for 32 years. Nature again: wooded area, beautiful terrace, fantastic food of course. Dick also scores enormously with Trees for Home. A concept he started 9 years ago, 4 days a week, and has now done so many meals during the 11 weeks of closure. It's a huge success. 3-course, smart, healthy and easy to prepare at home. What he also does is “eat with the chefs”: you can pick up a meal dish from him and that is the same as the chefs from his kitchen are also eating that evening. Costs only 12,50 euros and Friday vegetarian is the hit. This year, Dick is also celebrating the fact that he has been able to hold the title of Master Chef for 30 years, the highest attainable degree of professional competence for a chef in the Netherlands.”
